    Just wondering if anyone knows his string setup? With his injury history(including elbow Tommy John surgery), just wondering what string setup he's using. Also somewhat surprised that he would be using an APD Gt which is on the stiffer side of racquets, instead of a racquet with more flex. Thanks in advance.

    Ouch! He has not gotten on the low tension bandwagon.

    He's gone up in tension since Wimbledon. Was between 50 and 54 there.

    Thanks Drakulie and jazar. With his elbow issues, his string choice and tension is somewhat interesting. You'd think he'd go to a softer setup. He must feel pretty confident in the surgeon/operative procedure! Thanks again.

    yeah, he started at 58, and immediately went up to 60, ending at 62 the last few days.

    Majority of players went up in tension, stating the courts were playing really fast.
